    another mod to add to my wishlist of "things i will never be able to do myself":banghead: just out of interest do all standard b6's come with halogen lights as my car lights seem to be quite bright anyway and they dont appear to be yellowy, or maybe its just my poor eyesight,:blink: but judging from everyones experience who have got these, the hid's make a massive difference, guess i'll probably neva know...:noway:

    I love mine and its one of the best mods i have ever done. Went for an ebay set, but checked with a few people and the seller that they give no errors and this was correct.

    The only down side for me is the feedback in the system. Radio is now very poor.

    Im in the process of fitting a inline sound compressor to see if that fixes the problems.

    Will go for them again in my golf if i keep it for long enough..

    Start up will tell if there HIDs or Halogens
    HIDs fire like an arc light (because thats what they basically are) bright flash up then a slight dip in light as they stabilize
    halogens just come on .

    I got these, they fit under the headlight where the standard ones would fit. They dont bring any errors up on the DIS. I got the 5K and my headlights were projector style.

    H7 Slim Fit Xenon HID headlight conversion kit: HIDs 4U

    If you use the code 'strathy' it will give you £30 off and total at £90.
